Ames Tank to Matterhorn

The map below details a hike that I made on the 4th of June 2005. This is part of the Galloping Goose trail located at Ophir CO. The trail follows the grade of the Rio Grande Southern between the Ames water tank site and the butterfly trestle, Bridge 44A. The trail starts where forest road 623 leaves the grade and starts winding up the hillside. I found it to be a very enjoyable hike with the lush mountain side and the only encounter I had was two mountain bikers on the return trip.
